If I use Backup Buddy to move a WordPress website I created on one server to another does the server I'm locating the WordPress site need to have a database present and/or do I need any special requirements at the receiving server in order for the migration to work? IE Do I need to have an empty database available on the receiving server? Are their any special permissions required on the receiving server?

Sorry for the questions but I want to make sure Backup Buddy will work without problems prior to my purchase of a developer license.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mliving,

Thanks for your interest in BackupBuddy!

You will need an empty database for the migration. As far as special permissions there aren't any. Below is a link to our codex, it may clarify the process a little more.
